With her new, liberating tune “I Tried,” Elizabeth M Drummond is back. The title provides a hint as to the subject matter, and anybody who has ever loved enough to attempt to make a relationship work against overwhelming odds will understand and sympathize with the pain this song conveys. The record arrives ahead of her forthcoming EP, Congratulations, slated to drop on November 18th.
This song started with a lo-fi hip hop loop which I played guitar over. I think I wrote and produced this song in its entirety in one day, which is rare, but also necessary for me in recent years. I will often abandon something if I don’t finish it very soon after starting,” Elizabeth shares. She adds, “Again, this song is just a reflection of how I was feeling after coming out of a relationship that had run its course. I have to thank my dear friend Guy Tarento for pushing me to finish the song and the production on my own. I would never have released it without his insistence”
Elizabeth M Drummond’s Congratulations EP is a compilation of expertly concise songs that, although being presented in part in an affable and tongue-in-cheek style, reflect and convey the anguish and frustration Drummond felt during a time in her life. As a result of listening to this album, you will remember Drummond as a unique and promising new artist in the years beyond 2022.
